Fat people are angry.

Someone hurled this insult at me yesterday. I am still reeling. I've never heard this, not growing up, etc. I'm pissed off, which confirms that I'm fat and angry and now I'm even more pissed.

maybe try to harness that anger and put it to good use-going an extra 1/4 mile on the treadmill or bike, or something similar...venting here is a good release, as i am sure you will find support in your reaction to such a statement.

I can't believe someone said that. It was rude and uncalled for and I hope that you don't let the rude comment of one person affect your goal to continue becoming more healthy. The only thing that makes people angry (fat or otherwise) are people who make unnecessary comments like that! I wish you the best of luck!

when people say dumb stuff, I always remember that it is a reflection of their personality. how could they know you? even tho they may be trying to hurt you, they are really just revealing their own true nature. be glad you found out what they are really like (mean...)

Don't be bothered by this stupid person....if these kinds of people didn't exist, whom would we blame stupidity on...and no, it's not the blonds!

I wouldn't call myself fat but chubby. I can say that was a rude thing for someone to say BUT I can also say that a majority of really fat people I have come into contact with do seem more angry then other people do. I don't say this to be mean just from my personal experience this is what I know. They seem pissed off and are usually barking orders or are just nasty.

Yes some are!

but so are some skinny people!

Maybe the person that said this has only had experience with angry fat people. No not the most "politically correct" thing to say to someone especially someone that may take offense to it as you did.
